North Captiva Island house description

Paradise Palms is the perfect retreat for your coastal adventures or for your relaxing beach vacation. This family vacation home is located on the barrier island of North Captiva. Just north of Sanibel and Captiva, and to the south of Cayo Costa, North Captiva is a bridgeless island accessed by boat or plane. It is a car-free, care-free island with a relaxed pace. Sandy trails wind throughout the island and electric golf carts, bicycles and foot power are the standard means of are optional! Over 4 miles of pristine white sand beaches wrap around the island's west and northern shores and lush mangrove forests fringe the east and southern coastlines. The Gulf of Mexico, Pine Island Sound, and Captiva Pass offer world-class fishing and nearby islands offer beach-lovers and boaters unforgettable adventures. We want to make your stay in our home first class. And we started with the best location on the island and ended with many high quality decorations and décor. The home has just completed a full remodel from top to bottom. Every room was upgraded. We added an elevator, game room, and new playroom area for the small children to play. We even updated our pool deck. Yes you will have a private pool.

Paradise Palm is perfectly placed on the North Bay side of North Captiva and it is nestled among native palms as you enter from the cart path. Once inside the home you will find an elegant yet casual Coastal Décor with an un-paralled view of the water and islands of North Captiva, your private beach and private dock. Climb the steps to the very private and largest roof level deck one the Island so that you and your guests can discretely sun bathe or watch the sunset and sunrise. Beautiful wading birds, song birds, ospreys and bald eagles are frequent visitors. With the house sliding pocket doors open, guests can enjoy and bring the peaceful sound of the Gulf surf and the gentle rustle of palm fronds inside. The home is wrapped by very wide and relaxing porches and decks on three sides with ample comfortable seating strategically placed. Dine on the porch with the evening breeze or have coffee with the sunrise. Swim in our heated pool with plenty of decking and seating to lounge in or out of the sun. Private boat dock with quick access to the best fishing you will ever experience or have a fun day fishing/relaxing on the dock, some of the best fishing and dolphin watching is right off our dock. Private beach with gentle surf is perfect for the young ones as the adults sit in the shade of the indoor or outdoor Lanai. For those who would like to unwind, grill your catch of the day on the outdoor grill and enjoy your favorite libation at bar area.

Paradise Palms was completely rebuilt in 2008 after hurricane Charlie in 2004 destroyed the home and we are in the midst of a beautiful interior renovation, enhancing the private landscaping and soon we will be increasing the dock to allow better fishing and fun. This home is fully provisioned for convenience, pleasure, comfort and the views. All three en-suite master bedrooms have huge king beds and sliding glass doors that will open your room to the views. On the first floor there is a game/media room with Xbox, High Definition TV and gaming table with a ½ bath. Also there is the Octopus den for the kids No Adults allowed. :)

On the second level, there are three bedrooms, two master bedrooms with king size beds, ample closet space and master baths (of course High definition satellite TV and Bluetooth Music stations). The third bedroom has a two bunk beds with trundle that sleeps 5 with large closet and a full bath.

On the third level is the open floor plan Kitchen/Living room, fourth bedroom and ½ bath.
The large open gourmet kitchen is stocked with all the tools you need to show off your culinary skills while enjoying the views and conversation. Bring your favorite 'K cup' coffee and drinks, as we have the Keurig brewing station. We also have a standard coffee machine for those who love to grind their own coffee. Also filter water is available so leave the plastic water bottles in the store.

The last master bedroom is on third floor with all the amenities of the other Master en-suites including the large sliding doors to provide the best beach experience available. Wireless Internet connection is available throughout the house.

For those with limited mobility an elevator is available on request.

Paradise Palms is a member if the NCIC club and guests are entitled to the use of the Club's amenities including two large heated swimming pool, spa, tennis courts, and private waterfront restaurant. Two custom golf carts are also included in the rental.

Besides your private beach, there are several beaches to explore on the island and excellent shelling and fishing. The state park is a walking tour with south Florida wildlife such as Tortoise, Bald Eagles, Raccoons and the reclusive Bob Cat.

Snook, Redfish, Snapper, and Spotted Sea Trout will usually bite a hook from the shore or dock. Charter boats can be hired to take you out on a world-class Tarpon fishing or backwater fishing expedition from our dock. The island and its waters teem with unique, beautiful, interesting and rare wildlife...each day brings new discoveries and wonders.

We strive to make Paradise Palms to be the perfect retreat or base for your island adventures. Our goal is to meet or exceed your beach vacation your reservation today and make Paradise Palms memories that will last a lifetime!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 'Paradise Palms' is owed by the Lord family (Randy, Stephanie and Piper) Randy and Stephanie are newly retired from a telecommunication company. They are currently working to build an organic farm in East Tennessee.

Why the Owner Chose North Captiva Island:
The Lords: 'We vacationed with a very large family group to North Captiva for Thanksgiving in 2012. It was the perfect family fun place to relax and enjoy family. We loved that the only access was by boat or private plane and that there were no cars on the island. The beaches are never crowded and it is not uncommon to have the beach all to ourselves. We loved the island so much we looked for a house that same week. Although many of the homes were beautiful, this home felt as though it was built just for us. This truly is a 'dream' house for us. We are offering this 'dream'' house for renting, to help cover the costs of the home and it makes us happy that our renters get as much enjoyment from 'Paradise Palms' as we do.'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Lords: 'We plan to have fun, adventures and make wonderful memories when we stay at 'Paradise Palms' : sunsets at the beach, dinners and board games at the kitchen table, long beach hikes to see if we can make it to the southern tip of the island, sand castle building, beach combing, fishing off the docks during a full moon, cooking fresh-caught fish on the grill, an Easter egg hunt in the sand, kayaking with manatees, see a family of bobcats walking through the back yard, stopping the golf cart for yet another tortoise crossing, taking outdoor showers under the stars, the chorus of crickets and frogs on a summer night, snorkeling along the shore, body surfing the day after a storm, exploring the mudflat to look for critters, jogging down the island's sandy trails, a spectacular sunrise...we will love enjoying it all with friends and family!'
